Randy K. Ferrell, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our third quarter results reflect our continuing efforts to work through any credit issues that arise.  We have maintained solid core earnings which were somewhat overshadowed by higher provisioning during the past few quarters as we aggressively addressed two impaired commercial loan relationships.  We believe making quality loans, acquiring low-cost deposits, controlling operating expenses, delivering superior customer service and maintaining our solid capital position continue to be the keys to our ongoing success."

Return on average assets (ROAA) was 0.83% and return on average equity (ROAE) was 10.00% for the third quarter of 2012, an increase from 0.76% and 9.74%, respectively, for the third quarter of 2011. For the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, Fauquier Bankshares' return on average assets was 0.51% and return on average equity was 6.21%, compared with 0.72% and 9.38%, respectively, for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.

Net interest margin decreased slightly to 3.94% in the third quarter of 2012 compared with 3.97% for the same period in 2011.  Net interest income for the third quarter of 2012 decreased $240,000 or 4.3% when compared with the same period in 2011.  Interest income is being negatively affected by the extended low interest rate environment as yields on earning assets continue to decrease.  The average yield on earning assets declined 22 basis points while cost of funds decreased 20 basis points from the third quarter 2011.  Net interest margin decreased to 3.93% for the first nine months of 2012 compared with 4.05% for the same period in 2011.  Net interest income for the first nine months of 2012 decreased $582,000 or 3.5% when compared with the same period in 2011.

Total assets were $575.6 million at September 30, 2012 compared with $604.6 million at September 30, 2011.  Total loans, net were $445.3 million at September 30, 2012 compared with $448.0 million at September 30, 2011.  Total deposits were $492.0 million at September 30, 2012 compared with $522.3 million at September 30, 2011.  Transaction deposits (Demand and NOW accounts) grew $37.4 million to $253.1 million at September 30, 2012 compared with $215.7 million at September 30, 2011, representing 51.5% of total deposits.

The provisions for loan losses for the third quarter and first nine months of 2012 were $550,000 and $3.85 million, respectively, compared with $700,000 and $1.47 million for the same periods in 2011. The increase for the first nine months of 2012 was due to the impairment of two commercial real estate loans identified in the second quarter 2012 with $1.1 million being charged-off in the third quarter of 2012.  The allowance for loan losses increased to $8.6 million or 1.90% of total loans at September 30, 2012 compared with $6.9 million or 1.51% at September 30, 2011.

Net loan charge-offs were $1.39 million in the third quarter 2012 compared with $434,000 in the third quarter of 2011.  The ratio of net charge-offs to average loans outstanding for the third quarter of 2012 was 0.30% compared with 0.10% for the same period in 2011.  Year to date, net charge-offs for the first nine months of 2012 was $1.97 million, or 0.43% of average loans, compared with $896,000 for the same period in 2011, or 0.19% of average loans.

Nonperforming assets increased to $14.5 million, or 2.52% of period end total assets, at September 30, 2012, compared with $8.4 million, or 1.39% of period end total assets, at September 30, 2011.  Included in nonperforming assets at September 30, 2012 were $12.4 million of nonperforming loans, $1.8 million of other real estate owned and $303,000 of nonperforming corporate bond investments.  Other real estate owned decreased to $1.8 million at September 30, 2012 compared with $3.6 million at September 30, 2011. 

"The increase in nonperforming loans this quarter was due to one commercial real estate loan which was placed on nonaccrual status in September," Ferrell said.  "During June 2012, this same loan was identified as impaired and potential losses were reserved at that time.  While we remain cautious on the outlook in our local economy, we feel the overall quality of the loan portfolio is solid.  We are well-capitalized and our balance sheet strength is evidenced by our allowance for loan loss coverage ratio of 1.90% to total loans."

Noninterest income, excluding securities gains and losses, decreased $138,000 to $1.54 million in the third quarter 2012 compared with $1.68 million in the same quarter in 2011.  The majority of the decrease is directly related to a decline in service charges on deposits, partially offset by an increase to trust and estate income of $40,000.  Noninterest income, excluding securities gains and losses, decreased $65,000 to $4.63 million during the first nine months of 2012 compared with $4.69 million during the same period in 2011.

Noninterest expense for the third quarter 2012 was $4.64 million, a decrease of $343,000 or 6.9% compared with $4.98 million for the third quarter 2011.  The decrease in the third quarter 2012 is a result of a reduction in salaries and benefits of $320,000.  In addition, other real estate owned (OREO) decreased $92,000 due to higher write-downs related to OREO in the third quarter of 2011.  Partially offsetting this decrease was an increase in marketing expense of $34,000 to $202,000.  Noninterest expense for the first nine months of 2012 decreased $1.3 million or 8.3% to $14.1 million compared with the same period in 2011.  This decrease was due primarily to the reduction of incentive compensation in salaries and benefits expense and recorded OREO write-downs, as mentioned in the quarterly comparison. Additionally, FDIC deposit insurance expense decreased $131,000 for the first nine months of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011.

Shareholders' equity increased to $48.5 million at September 30, 2012 compared with $47.0 million at September 30, 2011.  The book value of FBSS stock was $13.11 per common share as of September 30, 2012.  Fauquier Bankshares' stock price closed at $12.95 per share on October 31, 2012.  The Company's regulatory capital ratios continue to be deemed "Well Capitalized," the highest category assigned by the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond.   At September 30, 2012, the Company's leverage ratio was 9.35%, compared with 8.69% one year earlier. The Company's tier 1 and total risk-based ratios were 12.60% and 13.84%, respectively, at September 30, 2012, compared with 12.04% and 13.29% at September 30, 2011. The minimum capital ratios to be considered "Well Capitalized" by the Federal Reserve are 5.00% for the leverage ratio, 6.00% for the tier 1 risk-based ratio, and 10.00% for the total risk-based ratio.
